"Let's not forget who profited by selling nuclear technology to Iran in the first place;"

From the video:
Halliburton, the notorious U.S. energy company, sold key nuclear-reactor components to a private Iranian oil company called Oriental Oil Kish as recently as 2005, using offshore subsidiaries to circumvent U.S. sanctions.

CSPAN coverage of hearings that were quickly forgotten during the Bush years of Halliburton selling key nuclear tech and hardware to Iran, in such a way as to circumvent sanctions.

The "outrage" being promoted by right-wing media seems manufactured and less than honest in presenting Iran's nuclear position. (the United States had been promoting a nuclear Iran as far back as 1957, with Eisenhower's "Atoms for Peace" program.)

The first nuclear weapon was detonated around 70 years ago. they havent figured out how to build their own by now? Really gotta wonder about that.

Interesting conspiracy indeed.

If they could ever prove this, the devastation would be appalling and ironic.

What is "Faux"?

Haven't we the intelligence enough to collectively realize EVERYTHING coming out of the mouths of politicians on BOTH sides to be lies?

Lies about JOBS!

Lies about the ECONOMY!

Lies about protecting the "HOMELAND"! (Put that one in quotes because a well know German dictator from the past used that term)

Lies about EQUALITY!

Lies about LIES!

Lies about FREEDOM!

Lies about JUSTICE!

Lies about actually caring for the people THEY represent, while showing THEY care more about the BIG MONEY that GOT THEM ELECTED!

I could go on and on, but the 2 party system and how they have SUCCESSFULLY socially engineered us to pick a team and HATE each other because of what team we choose to belong to, should be proof enough of how damned dumbed down and stupid we have as a society, collectively become!

The blame game of political division, is as juvenile as children in kindergarten!

Yet, we claim to be educated Adults?

The U.S. government in whatever form, whether weapons or security industry, is either totally stupid or completely inept or both and even then it has a pure lust for cash & making more cash with total disregard for how they spend the people's money:

(Newser) –

The company formerly known as Blackwater has pulled in a pretty penny from US taxpayers in its Pentagon-supported drive to flush out the Afghan narcotics industry: Nearly $570 million from fiscal 2002 to September 2013 was funneled to the firm now known as Academi—about 32% of the $1.8 billion in contracts awarded since 2002, the Guardian reports. But not only has the US anti-drug initiative in Afghanistan crashed (a UN report noted there was a 60% growth from 2011 to 2013 in land used to grow poppies for opium), some of the projects meant to get the country back on its feet may have even boosted poppy growth, the Guardian notes.

In a war full of failures, the US counternarcotics mission in Afghanistan stands out: opiate production has climbed steadily over recent years to reach record-high levels last year.

Yet one clear winner in the anti-drug effort is not the Afghan people, but the infamous mercenary company formerly known as Blackwater.

Statistics released on Tuesday reveal that the rebranded private security firm, known since 2011 as Academi, reaped over a quarter billion dollars from the futile Defense Department push to eradicate Afghan narcotics, some 21% of the $1.5 bn in contracting money the Pentagon has devoted to the job since 2002.

I wonder how much Academi are making from the booming drug trade?

Exactly. Who gave (1) Chemical Weapons to Iraq (who later gave it to Syria) and (2) the first of the nuke tech to Iran, AND (3) the first of the nuke tech to Pakistan (Who later sold it to North Korea?)

1) Reagan
2) Bush Jr
3) Bush Jr

EVERY single one of these were provided by REPUBLICAN admistrations, and now FOX NEWS wants to scream about the recklessness of Obama?
